A Little Something Extra...

Spread Kindness 


Come join us as we spread a little kindness.  The Kindness Rocks Project encourages young people to create inspirational rocks and leave them for others to find and collect.  Take one for inspiration, share one with a friend who needs motivation or leave one for another.  One kind message at the right moment can change someone’s day, their outlook, and their whole life.

LMS will start our own Kindness Rock Garden.  With Debbie Martin, students will paint rocks that encourage, motivate, heel, soothe, send love and peace with words and artwork…whatever message they would like to spread.   

The Kindness Rocks Project has one simple goal, to promote random acts of kindness in the shape of painted rocks with inspirational words!  

Who: Elementary
When: Monday, November 4 & 11
Time: 3:20 - 4:30 p.m.
Limit: 6 - 10 Participants 
Cost: $50 each, includes supplies and snack
